Tech Theatre Goes Backstage at Cirque du Soleil’s KOOZA

Tech Theater students at Cirque du Soleil

The NDSJ Tech Theater team experienced a backstage tour of the Cirque du Soleil production of KOOZA! Students had small group discussions with expert technicians in the lighting, audio, rigging, carpentry, props and automation departments. They were able to ask detailed questions about what goes into creating a touring, big top show as technically elaborate as Kooza.

KOOZA then gifted our students with complimentary tickets to their amazing show and seated our group next to their tech booth so that they could watch professionals do their job both on and backstage!

Thanks to the KOOZA crew for this focused time and for further inspiring our students!
